Jaime Martín has been appointed Music Director of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, taking up the role from the 2019/2020 season. He will act as music director designate during the 2018/2018 season during which he will conduct the West Coast premiere of work by Bryce Dessner, a LACO co-commission with Carnegie Hall and Orchestra of St. Luke’s. As music director from 2019/2020 he will conduct the Orchestra for several performances each year and guide the artistic direction of the Orchestra across its many platforms.
“Los Angeles is unique in its energy, not least because of an enormous range of creative industries, and I feel it offersa huge artistic scope,” said Jaime. “I’m eager to start planning my first season and look forward to following in the incredible footsteps of Sir Neville Marriner and Jeffrey Kahane to build upon their work and bring LACO even further recognition.”
